Production notes
Recorded September 2004
Released September 2005

There are some corners of the Universe which have bred the most terrible things. Things which act against everything that we believe in. They must be fought.

So when the Doctor and Guy arrive in a pastoral field, and find things to be just a little too garish for their tastes, they suddenly realize that they are facing their worst enemy yet.

The Doctor has faced "Eeeeevil from the Dawn of Tiiiiime" before, but enemies like Fenric, the Toymaker and the Great Intelligence were nothing compared to what he must now overcome.

Surrounded by killer rabbits and undigestible toast, can the Doctor and Guy escape their captors' clutches, and make it back to the safety of the TARDIS, before being subjected to the dreaded Big Hug?

Popular myths

  • That BTR stole this release from the Crossover Adventures, who were originally intending to produce it (the author, Darran Jordan, granted BTR permission to produce the script after original producer Aron Toman had failed to produce it in a reasonable time frame).

Things to listen out for...

  • Jacob Aldridge indulges his love of the BBC TV series The Tellytubbies by voicing all four of the creatures.

Things you probably never knew...

  • This script was recorded at the same time as that of the 2004 Christmas production Crisp & Even as part of an evening dinner get-together for the core members of BTR Productions, following the filming earlier that day of The Six Minute Guy Cubed.
